Locust City Administrator James Inman Announces Resignation

Friday, June 8, 2012 — James Inman, who has been Locust city administrator for nearly a decade and was formerly police chief of the city for about seven years, informed Locust Mayor Scott Efird that he would leave his post June 22.

When contacted Friday morning, Inman said he could not comment on where he is headed until a formal announcement is made by the municipality on Monday.

“I’m not leaving here under any bad circumstances or ill will,” Inman said.

“It’s an opportunity that’s too good to pass up,” he said.

Although it was a tough decision, with a couple children in college and a couple more headed there in a few years, Inman said it was the right choice.

Locust Mayor Scott Efird wished Inman well in his future endeavors, but said he was sad to see him leave.

“It has nothing to do with council or personnel,” Efird said.

“He’s doing this for the betterment of his and his family’s financial needs.”

  • Do White Castle prices tell us anything about the minimum wage?

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
